40-Vehicle Pileup on Iowa Freeway Starts With Semi-Truck Collision
A jaw-dropping pileup that involved 40 vehicles and stretched for over a mile left motorists in the opposite lane stunned. It happened on an ice-slicked stretch of interstate highway 80 outside of Des Moines, Iowa and was captured on video by law enforcement on the scene. A tangle of semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, cars and SUVs littered the highway and onlookers were helpless to stop vehicles coming over the hill from slamming into the pileup. Fortunately, there were no fatalities.
